Why the Spanish agency (FNMT) certificate is not included in FF list? No idea, perhaps because they did not bother to ask, perhaps because it is valid for Spain only...
I am getting the feeling that what you are trying to imply is that Firefox has some sort of a list of certificates installed as part of FF itself. It doesn't.
? It has. At least in general. Actually on openSUSE the package mozilla-nss-certs has which is required and used by Firefox.
Ooops, you are right. Sorry. I forgot about that :-(
Just like NoScript, AdBlock, etc. this side of security is controlled by an Extension called PERSPECTIVES which contains a database of sites which are considered "safe". This is just an addon not a general feature so it might be true for you but not for others.
